Cole Masten. Abandoned by his superstar wife, Hollywood’s Perfect Husband is now Hollywood’s Sexiest Bachelor: partying hard and screwing even harder. Watch out Los Angeles, there's a new bad boy in town.

Summer Jenkins. That’s me, a small town girl stuck in Quincy, Georgia. I cook some mean chicken and dumplins, can bluff a grown man out of his savings in poker, and was voted Most Friendly my senior year.

We were from different worlds. Our lives shouldn’t have collided. But then Cole Masten read a book about my small town. And six months later, his jet landed on our dusty airstrip, and he brought Hollywood with him.

From the start, I knew he was trouble. For our town. And for me.

Sometimes, opposites just aren’t meant to attract.

Stand-alone Contemporary Romance.

My first venture into Alessandra’s writing was with Black Ties... That book blew me away, and I had to pick up Hollywood Dirt to try the lighter side of her work. Hollywood Dirt was a fun read; I was intrigued by Summer’s past, loved the witty remarks from Cole and enjoyed the small insight into Quincy and the Coca-Cola element that helped create the story.

Summer wants to get out of Quincy, she has never fit in, and an event occurred that made her a true outsider. When Bennington strolls into town and needs help securing locations for filming the upcoming movie, she is quick to offer her assistance. The money will help to set up her new life. When Cole flies into town early, her world is forever changed. They have an attraction, but they despise each other. When Cole offers Summer an opportunity of a life time, she is happy to accept, not thinking her past could bring it all crumbling down.

Cole comes to Quincy a month before filming his latest project, to escape the disaster of his personal life. He’s a little lost but hides behind his smile and his quick witted attitude. I enjoyed seeing him banter with Summer, but he also changed for the better throughout the story and did things he wouldn’t usually do.

Summer and Cole were pretty entertaining; they challenged one another and got under one another’s skin. I liked seeing them work together and the sexual tension between them continued to grow. It was great to see that Summer built a strong friendship with Ben, because after the incident, she has had no one except her mother. I liked seeing more of Cole, and not just the hardened shell he hides behind.

I liked the alternating perspectives; Summer’s in first person, Cole’s in third. I could see their emotions, how they were dealing with each other and how the movie was affecting them. I learned about how some residents of Quincy became millionaires by buying shares in the 1930’s... that aspect was fascinating! I liked how Cole turned it into a movie and how it bought Cole and Summer together. The writing was easy to be swept away in, and even though it’s not my favourite Alessandra Torre read, it was still a good story!

I have two quotes today... showing how Summer and Cole fight their attraction, and Cole saying what he wants!!

Suddenly, the spark became a flame and his mouth was on her, her words swallowed as his hands found her waist and pushed, her feet stumbling, her back—that damn dress—hitting the counter. She tasted of sweet fucking rebellion, her tongue softening, accepting. Then both of her hands were on his chest, and her adorable, tiny knee came up hard between his legs.
